Yeah, the remaining Monkees and Beatles should get together. Hell, Ringo was always more suited to be in the Monkees than the Beatles anyway.
He was no Bobby Sherman.

Jimi Hendrix Experience
I loved the Monkees as a kid and I introduced my girls to them a few years ago. We DVR the reruns and I still laugh at the stupid jokes and enjoy the songs. My 12 year old loves to do the Davy Jones dance from Sleepy Jean.
began studying piano at the age of nine, showing an aptitude for music by learning to play several different instruments, including the banjo and acoustic and bass guitars.
Tork was a proficient musician, and though the group generally did not play their own instruments on their first two albums, he was an exception, playing what he described as "third chair guitar" on Mike Nesmith's song "Papa Gene's Blues" from their first album. He subsequently played keyboards, bass guitar, banjo, harpsichord, and other instruments on their recordings. He also co-wrote, along with Joey Richards, the closing theme song of the second season of The Monkees, "For Pete's Sake". On the television show, he was relegated to playing the "lovable dummy", even though he is actually a highly intelligent, literate person, as the other Monkees have always been keen to point out in subsequent interviews.
Poor little fella. I think we'll hold a moment of silence at the Meatles concert when they pass through Arkansas.
In the CNN story, Jones is described as the quintissential 1960s heartthrob and then goes on to describe how he died of a heart attack. Am I the only one who got a chuckle out of that? I guess it make me a bad person then.
